A Bradley Mills pub has undergone a £78,000 transformation and who better to launch the new-look Rope Walk than their nearest neighbours - Huddersfield Giants.
The pub and restaurant, which are next to the John Smith’s stadium, invited prop Anthony Mullally and back rower Chris Bailey to officially re-open the popular watering hole into a Flaming Grill – a pub restaurant with a focus on providing great value food.
Chris said: “We had a great time at the relaunch of the Rope Walk, the new Flaming Grill menu looks fantastic. Although we’re currently in training for our up-coming match I’m sure they’ll be any number of Huddersfield locals stepping up to the the Flaming Grill Challenges in the coming weeks.”
Due to the Giants’ strict training and dietary regime ahead of Sunday’s match against the Bradford Bulls, the Giants had to resist taking on the pub’s infamous Trash Can Challenge.
This features a giant rack of ribs, double up cheese & bacon burger, beef chilli sundae, chicken skewer, onion rings and a triple portion of chips.
The investment has seen the pub receive a complete refurbishment with a new flame grill inspired décor, new furniture and kitchen equipment as well as a new chargrill menu focused on steaks and grills, served on hot sizzling skillets.
Rope Walk general manager, Amy Taylor, said: “It was an honour to welcome Anthony and Chris from the Huddersfield Giants down to officially re-launch our pub. We’d be really happy to welcome any of the players down again to take on our Flaming Challenges. The Rope Walk team and I are really excited about the future, the refurbishment has given the pub a new lease of life and we’re in a great position to have a flaming great summer!”
The pub is still looking for new recruits to join the team; anyone who’s interested in a position at the Rope Walk should contact the pub directly on 01484 519203.
Flaming Grill is part of Spirit Pub Company which owns and operates around 800 managed pubs across the UK.
